The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | EATING OUT -

Yet another tiny restau­rant that it’s nigh-on im­pos­si­ble to get a ta­ble in, but when you do see what the fuss is about. Some of the best value cook­ing around, the lunchtime small and large plates cost just ¤5 and ¤10 but many of the “small” plates are full meals in them­selves.

There’ll be no af­ter­noon slump with the spiced seafood chow­der or the risotto of pancetta, pea, chili & pars­ley. At night, the menu comes at ¤25 for two cour­ses, again great value. They have house wine by the glass or you can BYOB, and you can bring your own vinyl to play on their record player. Groovy.

In a well-re­stored old mill build­ing with great views of the Ha’apenny Bridge, we hope the out­door ter­race re­mains as hos­pitable in win­ter.

The cur­ried crab claws with sam­phire (¤16) are de­li­cious and the ham hock, baby potato, black pud­ding and poached
